I love the versatility of milk glass! There are so many different styles and pieces that it can go with any decor! I am not really a collector, I just have ended up with some pretty pieces that I enjoy using. I recently found a punch bowl set in a thrift shop. I saw a photo in Country Living magazine a few years back of a milk glass punch bowl full of lemonade with lemon slices floating on top (sorry about the photo quality- I've had the clipping in my file for awhile!). I thought it was so lovely and could imagine it with punches at every holiday or occasion, so was very happy to finally find mine! I love its swirled design and think it would also be nice as a serving bowl for salads, etc.
I also have a footed cake plate- I love footed cake plates and DO have a collection of those. My three little hobnail goblets serve as sweet vases when lined up on a table. My favorite piece however, is an antique Victorian footed fruit basket! I love its ornate openwork and basketweave decoration...maybe I am collecting milk glass!
For more fun, Laura of 52 Flea is having a wonderful giveaway to celebrate her one year blogging anniversary!

To celebrate her anniversary she is offering a giveaway of the Spring Edition of Jeanne D' Arc Living Magazine, a $50 gift certificate towards a handcrafted piece of jewelry by Lisa Leonard Designs, and the Winter edition of Somerset Life, in which Laura and 52 Flea is featured! Congratulations, Laura!
